Stimulus Check, Reparation and Responsibility

I know a lot of my Black people will disagree- maybe hate me for what I’m about say, which is the truth! I’m all for Reparation for our people but are we ready? Are we responsible enough? I think not, and this is a reflection of my community, people and self…

2020 was one of our most significant years for self evaluations on this matter. Our beloved Government, because of the Covid-19 epidemic; opt on helping it’s country people with a relief checks. 1200 hundred each adult and 500 per-child. This sent people to the edge of a happy frenzy. The things they can do with the extra money- Oh, hold fast! Let’s name the pro’s (quote on quote) of Covid-19. Unemployment approval was at it’s best. Because of the fear, people where given the choice to stay home. Unemployment sky- rocketed in weeks. Some unemployment Covid-19 met and an extra 6 hundred was added to your check as well. This put some people in a better position, helped some out and a crutch for a lot others. What I mean is some people did the responsible thing like pay off credit card, lights bills, rent paid a head of time, even saved some money. More did the un-responsible thing and now more minority families are facing evictions. How many friends and families we know are facing this at this very moment? Who do we blame? The people or our Government? Or, do we blame ourselves? Meaning taking responsibility for our own nerviness. The Government, for their manipulation. And once again, our stupidity. Do we all agree? With this disappointment what can we expect to happen if more than 100,00 of reparation is given to our Deserving Nation. I honestly think it will be blown. And id we all be honest with ourselves, you think so too.

Like I said, a lot will hate this statement and more so the indignation of the uncle Tom bullshit. I can’t wait to hear it. No, but honestly, what do the people think? How do we truly feel about reparation? What can we do to not only invest in our future but educate our people as a whole to be self impowered and developers. What can our Black Culture do to show we are more than a civilized culture. We are human-being and can trust ourselves and each other to stand on it.
